    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (Bedford, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was not really an interview, but rather an assessment. The whole process lasted 4 hours with several tasks to complete:
    The first was a technical interview (called SOL interview) with two interviewer. It lasted for one hour. The next interview was about the leadership vision given by Unilever in advance. Personal examples had to be given for the applications of the required leadership skills.
    This was followed by a case study. This study was given on a paper with one hour preparation time in order to complete a presentation.
    An overview of the case study will be given below:

The product should be cooked before consumed; however, it should be safe to eat without cooking. Other competitors do not include the cooking step. How is it possible to reduce the cooking time and temperature in the oven without decreasing consumer safety.
    Tasks: Which is the main hazard in the product?
    How would you perform a risk assessment and which advice would you give to the company? Which data is required for a quantitative risk assessment?

    Interview

    I applied online, the process is efficient and the games you need to play are interesting and don't take too long. You get feedback on your performance immediately, but it takes very long to hear back about whether you got into the next round or not.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    View the position on the Unilever Careers Facebook page. Sent my CV by e-mail and was invited to do an online exam consisting mostly on math and logical.
    After passing the exam, I was invited to an on-site assessment in one of their food plants on my city.
    The assessment consisted only on one business case supervised by three people. The people of Unilever seemed restless and anxious. They payed little attention to the process we took part in order to resolve our business case and gave little feedback on our presentation at the end.
    Finally, the person of HR told us that usually business cases were larger and more exhausting, that this one in particular was easier and shorter and she didn't know why.

    There was no interview and very little interaction.

    Considering past experiences with other companies, the people from HR were very helpful and answered all e-mails super fast, but the people on the on-site assessment were poorly chosen and showed little interest.

    Resourcing Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingston, East of England, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Kingston, East of England, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Two skype interviews one face to face meeting. Took a whole month to do, had to constantly chase for 2.5 weeks for an update. Awful customer service from the recruitment team in London.

    Also only one interviewer per interview which makes Unilever very open to candidates making an unfair recruitment claim against them.
